Question burning cd's on rh9

i have a samsung cd-rw and a liteon cd-rom on the same ide (secondary) cable, as master and slave, respectively.
rh detects them both, and i have no problem reading on both, but i can't burn cd's. (i'm using gnome-toaster, which i think is the grafical itnterface for cdrecord)
here's what i have done to the moment (as root)
-installed mpg123 so the gt can read/write mp3 files
-entered the correct location for it's use
here's where it gets tricky. i type

[root@localhost root]# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 J?rg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

i've read that maybe i can use cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus to detect if i can use the ATAPI device.

[root@localhost root]# cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus

0,3,0 3) *
0,4,0 4) *
0,5,0 5) *
0,6,0 6) *
0,7,0 7) *

after, i use cdrecord (...) dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 (...) and this do burn the cd, but there's is no sound (audio cd). Maybe this is because i have the audio cable connected to the cd-rom, istead of the cd-rw?
help, please

Have you tried playing the CD in the CDROM drive yet? The latest version of xmms is supposed to use digital audio extraction.

no sound in the cd-player, although i had to install an older version of xmms because the one on rh9 (as default) didnīt played mp3 files
